Work mode in no time with this home office
Updated: Fri Feb 14 2020
Hello, from a new homeowner! I just moved into a new house with my four adorable cats and was looking to set up my workspace. The objective was to design a home office that would bring out my creative best and increase my productivity levels - all within the comfort of my home!
Lauren, our resident designer, resides in Los Angeles, California. She has a keen eye for detail and loves to design functional spaces high on style. She loves a good hack and has a ton of design tips and DIY ideas always ready to offer as solutions.

With me, it’s always bolder, the better. So, one of the first things I told Lauren was that the colors she used for the decor has to be bright and happy. Multi-colors and pastels are right up my alley. Tan and beige, not so much. This room will be my office space, and I work from home. So it has to be designed in a way to ensure productivity, allow me to be creative and comfortable. The decor, therefore, has to be functional and has enough storage space for my work things. And yes, without compromising on aesthetics. On design - I am excited by different styles and textures. I love the eclectic decor, so that had to be featured, but with a fun Mid-Century modern twist. Mandatory additions to the room - I needed a desk with enough space around it to work on my iMac; I wanted proper storage for the laser printer, and the shelves on one wall have to stay.
Watching Design Experts at Work
Watching Lauren put together, the design was incredible. She hit all the right notes, high on style, full marks on functionality, and more than enough storage - precisely what I wanted. Lauren worked marvelously with the space, including everything that I put on my wishlist. The driftwood desk from World Market was just what I was looking for, and the way she played with textures, it was terrific. Storage space was added in the form of baskets and shelves and bookcases from various places like Wayfair and West Elm, and I must say it opened my eyes to what you can do with a simple piece of furniture and accessory. The color of the room was my favorite thing; it was happy and warm and bright, just the way I like it. The time frame within which it was executed was perfect, there were no unnecessary delays, and the office was complete well within what I was hoping for.
Designer NotesHi Adriana. Designing your colorful and bright home office was a pleasure. I had so much fun incorporating all the lovely little things you wanted, and I hope you like it as much as I do. The Driftwood Cristela Desk from World Market fit your requirements correctly, and your laser printer found a safe and secure place as well. I kept the color palette around pastels, giving the room a lot of warm energy. I hope you feel at home here, Adriana!
Using the Spacejoy App to Experience Designs in 3D
The Spacejoy app is quite exciting. I have used the services of an interior designer in the past, but I was given the opportunity to view my room in 3D even before it was done. This, I think, made my experience with Spacejoy even more memorable. I loved the interactive nature of the App and it gave me a great sense of what the outcome was going to be like.

The feedback process was straightforward with Lauren. I was given two design options to my home office, and once I knew which one I wanted to go ahead with, progress was smooth. There were a few additions and revisions I wanted, and Lauren incorporated them without any difficulty...ultimately producing the perfect rendition of my home office.

Joyous Homes, Happy CustomerThis is what Adriana Amonte had to say on the final design
I am super happy with my home office. I am sure that it will bring out the creative best in me but more importantly, it’s a space where I’ll be comfortable spending time in. The best part was that the overall experience was so seamless and enjoyable that it didn’t feel like I was doing a task. It was a journey through which I learned as much as I had fun. To see everything come together was joyous, I will be recommending Spacejoy to my friends and family!
